Emoji are two-dimensional pictographs that were originally designed to convey emotion between participants in text-based conversation. This workshop paper draws on interview data to describe ways in which emoji have been appropriated in pursuit of other relationally meaningful behaviours in contemporary messaging applications. We speculate that the presence of appropriable tools like emoji might influence the selection of a communication channel for particular types of mediated conversation.
